UK Asylum Law and Policy: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives
Sweet & Maxwell, 2004 - Asylum, Right of - 466 pages
The past decade has witnessed unprecedented activity in the field of UK asylum law, with four major Acts passed in nine years. Yet asylum seekers and refugees are not a new phenomenon in the UK, nor is the perception of them as a problem. "UK Asylum Law and Policy" provides a critical analysis of the development of legislation in this area, charting the definition and ongoing redefinition of the asylum seeker in the eyes of the law. It examines the concept of asylum, how it has evolved, and the law and practice to which it has given rise. By combining historical and contemporary perspectives, and taking account of national, European and international determinants, the book provides a wide-ranging and up-to-date conspectus of major developments and issues in UK asylum law and policy.
